So guys, funny story, apparently the author didn't like character designs you guys made. Now, I know I said that you could go ahead, but funny story, we need you to stop production and redo them if you want to continue this show.
>>
How can this show keep being so good so consistently? There have been absolutely zero drops in quality in any aspect of the show and I watch it as soon as I get home from work every single thursday. No melodrama shit, characters act mostly professional with just the right amount of whimsy so that you get attached to them, and the direction is absolutely inspired sometimes.

>>
>>120239489
I thought it was a nice touch that they put in that little scene of her spilling the tea.
It's pretty obvious that the stress of her job is getting worse, and that they're going somewhere with this.

She's going to quit and find a new job before the end of the series, isn't she?

That's true, but it could very easily have been very bland. Instead they're perfectly juggling the conflict of the studio with several character arcs at the same time, and also like I said before the direction is stupidly good at certain points. Pic related, little shit like this really grabs people's attention.

Glasses was kinda cute on how she didn't understand jack shit about everything. Also I can't decide the new fluffy hair animator girl is cute or annoying.

Also, is it summer in the Shirobako universe? Will next episode Aoi and co wear short sleeves(I notice Aoi was wearing one in when Yano called) or even sleeveless? (like Midori in the preview) Oh God my dick will never be ready.

I think the show has one big flaw:

CG girl. She shouldn't have left a job after only working there six months and shouldn't have found a job again so easily. That's unrealistic in the extreme especially when the show prides itself on showing a grounded account of the industry.

It sticks out really badly.
>>
>>120243515
Beautyspot-kun said he'd hook her up.
She got a job because Aoi has connections, it's anime nepotism at work.
>>
>>120243550
Seems more extreme with Diesel.
>>
>>120243515
But getting a job through connections is very realistic. It shows just how important it is.
>>
>>120243515
It's almost like they cut out her sub-plot for the other girls. Well she was my least favorite anyway
>>
>>120243515
I don't think it's completely unrealistic as you make it sound. The fact that she found a job again so easily is more to the unrealistic side, even though she did have a connection, but the fact that she left her job after working there for 6 months is quite realistic if you know exactly what you want to do. It just takes guts to do.
>>
>>120242659
I'm really hoping that was a setup to her noticing some autistic little detail later and saving their show
>>
>>120243550
Nepotism isn't the word I would use in that situation. It has the connotation that the person hired does not have the appropriate qualifications for the job.

Diesel-chan is good at what she does. The writer and the director were both happy with the work and they insisted on bringing her on-board. Would Diesel-chan have gotten the opportunity to do research without her connections to Oi-chan? No, but that's why it's called connections, and not network. It's how the world works, you don't make professional and personal connections, you don't get shit.
>>
>>120243550
>>120243599
>>120243581

Getting it with connections I can buy, but they didn't even bring up the fact she'd quit a job after half a year at a good company. There was no job interview or anything.

I just can't believe you'd throw away a good job like that in this economy when you're new to the industry and need a good track record on your CV. And it's not like she was overworked, couldn't they have possible done something with doing something she loves more as a part-time thing?

I don't know but it really really stands out as a stupid choice for a show like this.
>>
>>120242401
where the hell did glasses girl come from? was she in the interview episode?
>>
>>120243599

A rare occurrence.
>>
>>120243770
Yes, she likes Ghibli movies
>>
>>120243765
I think you overestimate the difficulty it is to get a job in animation over there. It typically is 'if you can do it, then you can do it' sort of deal, just that your wages are shit starting because you are not experienced. She got a job at a good company too, so it isn't hard to believe she'd get in a group that appears to be a very small staff.
>>
>>120243765
She's new star for CG tires, a small CG company of course will hire her to make plane tires
>>
>>120243765
>couldn't they have possible done something with doing something she loves more as a part-time thing?

doing something you hate just to survive isn't any way to live OP. it's the reality for most people, but there's no denying, it's a shitty way to live.
Misa was really brave to gamble like that and pursue her passion. Shows you can't get anywhere in life without having direction and guts to follow it.

>>120243853
right i remember that now. she was the one who didn't like commuting. i thought her remark about ghilbi was to show that she didn't really have any interest in anime outside of the mainstream. how do people like that get hired?
>>
>>120243947
>how do people like that get hired?
"Passion for anime" isn't exactly a job requirement or an indicator for competence, and just look at Tarou.
>>
>>120243947
Because Musani is desperate for production assistant slaves.
>>
>>120243947
Because the companies need production assistants badly, as it's a stressful job which probably has a ton of turnover. If they can find someone who looks to be competent they will hire them. Besides, they hired the otaku girl too. I'm trying to remember the other people interviewed...

Basically, they need people to do the work and they try to hire competent people. Being an otaku can be a bonus for the company (certainly otaku fit into the culture better), but they'd rather have someone who does the work well than, well, Tarou.
>>
>>120239475

They're making an anime about the thing they know the most about. It's not surprising at all.

I was surprised they hired her as well. But more-so because of the commuting vs. her having no anime knowledge.

She was basically only quitting her old job/applying for this because she hated the commute.
It gave the impression she'd instantly quit this production assistant job as well if something even closer to her home came up.

After watched the last ep, I think the reason she quit not because she hate to commute but more like have to leave at 5am and need 2 hours to get to her former workplace

Seiji Mizushima may look like the director in Shirobako but his affect is completely different. Seiichi Kinoshita has this butterball-deer-in-the-headlights look, but Mizushima always seems to be a beaming, self-confident Buddha. He's had some huge successes and even some of his badly selling titles (Oh Edo Rocket) are actually really good. My guess is, he's flattered.

It used to be the main reason I started watching anime. But then my standards got lower as time went on. Also, it's been a while since I've seen a sakuga thread. The last one I saw one was when Yozakura Quartet was airing.

everyone answers to somebody. and when it comes to $$$ (man-hours) and reputation, somebody ends up paying the price of failure. it's unrealistic that they would NEVER be granted face-to-face with the author. the fact they would need to twist somebody's arm, more realistic, but still musani dropped the ball by not pushing the matter.

And how much "arm-twisting" do you think Musani needs to do before the publisher thinks GI Staff may be more "cooperative" and actually getting production work done instead of bugging them day in and day out?

What are 'contracts'? You don't undertake a year long project without first getting certain guarantees in writing. They weren't a position where the project sponsor could all of a sudden change contractors on a whim. Besides which, entering into an agreement like this requires good faith from both sides. The publisher as the project sponsor would have been responsible for ensuring Musani had all the resources at their disposal to ensure the project moved ahead: that includes the power to prod the author to work with Musani when needed.

>>120247998
I don't like any of them. The PINK PINK PINK PINK design is just bad, so no variation in the saturation could be good.

>>120248642
>ou speak as though Musani has made zero reasonable effort to ensure that they were meeting the author's intentions.

that's just it. they made ZERO effort. they took zero initiative, and simply trusted the slimey agents words at face value. they were obviously having trouble getting face-to-face time with the author. a phone call to the big-wigs at the publisher (who have a clear stake in the anime's success/failure) is all it would have taken to make that happen.

They were speaking with the agent, who is meant to act as a representative. They had no way of knowing that the author wasn't getting the information, although we as the audience could see it getting set up to go that way.

Going outside the established lines of communication could potentially get them a reputation for being difficult to work with. They're not exactly a company with a reputation that will allow them to pick and choose clients. They're in a position where they need to both put out good quality work, and bend over backwards for their clients to get more opportunities to put out good quality work.

Actually, animators are selected by several tests consisting of making animations out of various scenarios. They are given a piece of paper with a drawing on it and they have to animate it as instructed with a limited amount of paper.
>>
>>120249169
milestones require sign-off. you don't move to phase 2 of a project without knowing your client is satisfied with the deliverables of phase 1. it's in everyone's best interest. musani should have either pushed the agent to either cough up the author or to sign off on phase 1 in his stead. you had better fucking believe the agent would have coughed up the author if he was pressed.

I think you overestimate their position. Seems like their options were to sit on their hands refusing to work beyond demanding to see the author or to just start production and hope that what just happened doesn't.

They were approved to begin work by their designated line of communication to both the client company and the author.

It's pretty clear that this whole arc is about dealing with unreasonable clients, in the same way that the first arc was about internal complications.

She was a decently strong candidate for the part in the meeting.

I don't really think it qualifies as an asspull if that's how she gets the part, the first casting choice being unavailable to take the part for whatever reason is a pretty common way that inexperienced actors land their first major part. I'd prefer it if she wasn't the immediate second choice either, but if the first choice were to get sick and the second choice had already committed to another project that's a perfectly realistic way for her to get the role.

Some of them are, but it's more that they're completely socially inappropriate. The ones who are shy are mostly trying to cope with their inability to read the rules of normal social interaction, rather than being driven by massive anxiety.

This is something unrealistic in the anime actually, as in reality in Japan dying hair in bright colors is unacceptable in the corporate setting. Not that I'm complaining though.

I think it's unrealistic to expect small animations companies to all have the strict corporate culture you're describing. In general smaller companies and creative companies both tend to have less strict corporate cultures. Not to mention that the president of the company is portrayed as being particularly laid back.

>>
>>120251622
For the employees who just work in the office, that'd be fine, but for the people who regularly face clients it wouldn't be. Of course the anime isn't real life though, so this is a meaningless topic.
